  4. @scribus Nope. The shop has no G4 pony doormat.

  5. Considering buying this doormat https://i.imgur.com/hSDjIQl.jpg Would be an easier decision if there was not an OG pony on it.

  6. @scribus A friend of mine did a test at school in the computer class and one task was to write a simple program on paper. He wrote everything in "one line". His teacher said that if there were any mistakes he'd take double the penalty points. Fortunately everything was perfect, both syntactically and semantically, and the program did what was demanded.

  7. @oracle I'm a big fan of the Allman style. My visual perception works better with this style (except for the space between function identifier and parameter list braces). I don't even worry indenting too much. If I have to indent a lot of levels then it's clear that I have to refactor the code block into a separate method. I barely get over the 80 character line. Even if I do cross that line I try to keep it at least below 100.

  12. @scribus AndStatus is not that bad. It's not very streamlined but it can do the job.

  13. Outsourcing computer support is the worst. I waited the whole day for a ticket that I wrote this morning. It was urgent and I had to get my things done. If I had admin rights I'd have been a non-issue. Because of that nothing got accomplished today. Not what I've intended.

  14. My mother bought a vegetable dicing appliance at the flea market but coming home we saw that a little push button was broken. I took the button out, measured it, modeled it in a CAD program, 3d printed it, and reassembled that thing into working order.

  15. Finally I got a date for when I can move in my new apartment. I can finally plan my "vacation" for buying furniture and stuff. I've been waiting for this since March. 11 months without vacation, and even then the vacation will be just work putting everything together.

  19. The end of Adventure Time is like an average episode. Not quite bad. Just uninspiring and rushed. The comic mini-series "Beginning of End" tackles the issue of an ending series far more elegantly.

  22. Watching the He-Man documentary on Netflix. It's a great companion piece to the Toys That Made Us episode that goes deeper into the animation of the series.
